New issue of IKSURFMAG is out and good article on Cape Town where I've been spending the last few months. It has been a odd year for wind but if you are willing to jump between a twintip, surfboard and foil, depending on the conditions, its been windy everyday :-) And take Rou's thoughts on crime with a little bit of context - if you're hobbling around at 3am, inebriated and waving your iPhone around, getting mugged isn't that big a surprise in many places around the world ;-)

Do you want 3x your kite sessions this summer?
Then its time to learn to kitefoil and ignore all the stories of it being really hard or visions of getting impaled on sharp objects! The truth is that kitefoiling has evolved over the last couple of years, both with equipment that is tailored to beginner and intermediate foilers but also how we teach it. We know how to teach foiling so you can get up and ride quickly with minimal crashing! It is a challenge but one that every independent kiteboarder can achieve with the right equipment, in the right conditions and with a little help and advise.

Our Kitefoiling Volume 1 Collection of how-to videos is the definitive guide to learn to kitefoil, taking you through all the stages right up to your first gybes. Over 2 hours of instruction broken down across 11 videos, and the FREE introduction video below will give you a great overview of everything covered.

You can buy and watch the full Kitefoiling Volume 1 Collection on the Progression website and download videos to the Progression mobile app to watch offline. There is no easier way to get started with your journey into kitefoiling...

And if you have any questions whilst learning to foil I'm always happy to help out with answers, either post in the comments here on Facebook or email me directly:

The question is why you wouldn't want to learn?

If you want to learn to ride a kite surfboard, or improve your technique, then check out the trailer for our Kitesurfing Volume 1 Collection. With over 4 hours of videos, we cover everything you need to learn to ride waves properly.

It's made up of 3 sub-collections:

### Riding & Control ###
Here we get you started with transitioning from a twintip to ride a strapless surfboard. We'll look at various waterstart options, board control and how to get out over waves.

### Carving Turns ###
The essence of turning on a wave is a carving turn and break this down in gentle gybes with the foot change and then powered carves. And we do this for the heelside to toeside and the toeside to heelside versions. This really is the first building block that directly translates to your bottom and top turns on a wave.

### Riding Waves ###
This is the goal and we take all the skills you have learned up until now and apply them to understanding how to perform a great bottom and top turn for both frontside and backside riding. Then we look at how you connect multiple turns together. The kite is obviously a huge part of all of this and the element that can screw it all up so we have multi-angle shots for everything so you can see exactly what is going on for your board, body and kite, along with the wave.

We have free introduction videos for each of these sub-collections and you can buy all or part of the collections, whatever works for the level you currently at. Find out more on the Kitesurfing Volume 1 Collection page on our website:

And don't forget all these videos are available to stream online through the Progression website or downloadable for offline viewing in the Progression mobile app.
